Subject: Tough to sit through
It seemed to take two hours to view this one hour film. Thought the acting was barely up to par, the screenplay was poorly done. A good story with a terrible ending

Subject: I was surprised.... see a major soft drink product (Pepsi) mentioned briefly.

Good film, and the picture quality is quite good too.

Subject: Innocence Lost
A well-staged opening scene predicts the mood of this film noirish drama about an innocent working class girl with a grim home life, finding an escape that leads to a life of degradation. There is little on-screen violence, yet this is one of the early "toughies" that eventually would lead to starkly realistic films like "Detour" and "Pickup on South Street." In this instance, a well-crafted screenplay packs a hell of a lot of nearly filler-free plot into just 62 minutes. The only exception is a pointlessly added nightclub act. Doris Merrick is the innocent. Robert Lowery is the cad who lures her to the dark side. There is a large, mostly competent supporting cast. Within the limitations of its time and budget, fully engaging. FOOTNOTE: "Detour" is available here at the Archive. "Pickup on South Street" is still under copyright and available on a commercial DVD.

Subject: it probably won't work (2)
I forgot to mention that the VTS_01_0.VOB is supposed to be the menu. For the main movie, the right name would be VTS_01_1.VOB. Like I said, it probably won't work, anyway. Media Player Classic (free) will play any video file, including the one under discussion here. The DVD format is just about dead. I put 6 XviD movies on 1 DVD blank and play them in my standalone. Why would I make DVDs?

Subject: Worth a watch
It's a fairly well written and produced film, but deserving of better acting. A better director could have punched up some scenes. Pacing is good. A minor triumph is that the makers kept the movie on the high side of the line between drama and moralistic melodrama, where stories like this usually wallow. This movie will never be confused with 'The Big Sleep' although a minor character looks somewhat like Lauren Bacall.

I downloaded the mpeg1 file. Some frames are missing in a few spots which ruins dialog, but the audio and video are in good shape overall.

Subject: Pretty good
A good story noir. Sort of clumsy, some akward parts. But a very good story of three women that end up in sad situations centered aroung the Club Paradise.
Acting is good, direction is not so good, production is good as is the film quality.
Watch it just for the story.
